We have visited Marrakech 5 times over the past 12 years, and Riad Azalia has been by far the best place we've stayed in. The owners, Andrea and Adil, as the rest of the staff, were extremely friendly and professional, and willing to help us have the best stay in every possible way.
The riad's location is ideal, tucked away in a nice derb very close to Jemaa El Fna, which allows you to pop in whenever needed during your day out.
It is an oasis of peace and quiet right next to the bustle. You can't hear ANYTHING at night.
The raid is tastefully decorated with traditional Moroccan architecture features like zellige and tadelakt, lovely colours, lamps and textiles. The whole atmosphere is very harmonic and real, unlike other phony-feeling places in town.
A fresh and complete breakfast is served on the terrace, where you can just chill-out anytime of day, as in the inner courtyard.
We were traveling with our 8-month-old baby, and found that everyone was helpful and understanding in heating meals, serving dinner in the courtyard next to our room, leaving the pram anywhere, etc. She was lovingly spoiled in everybody's arms!
The morning we were leaving, Andrea came in on purpose to serve us a full breakfast just outside our room at 7 am.
We really felt at home and relaxed not just in our room but everywhere in the riad. The best feature by far are the owners Adil and Andrea. They are just so dedicated, professional and honest. And you can ask them anything you need about Marrakech, in French, English or Spanish(at least), and will get top advice.
We will definitely be back to them if we return to Marrakech, and recommend the experience to everyone.
